Drone Wrath for a Compliant Society

The military has transformed warfare into a deadly computer game with drone weapons. Media programs like Weaponology or Future Weapons on the Military Channel provide detailed examples of the lethalness of autonomous technology. The use of drones as the preferred method of carnage is well established. Seldom do moral questions come into the discussions of eliminating enemies of the state. The rules of engagement vested in international law and the Geneva Convention, either ignored or rewritten for high-tech 21st Century combat, becomes the foundational tactic to maintain the killing force of the grand empire.

Why Supreme Court Selections are a False Choice

The commotion over the nominations of John Roberts and Harriet Miers avoid the central problem with the Supreme Court.  Judicial review in its pure raw form is a guaranteed formula for state sponsored terrorism.  Under the fig leaf of law, the court manufactures excuses for the state to use force and intimidation to compel, coerce and control society for the benefit of the central government.  Is there any question that Supreme Court jurists are government employees?  Of course not, so why is it automatically assumed that black robed magistrates serve the cause of justice when their rulings practice the art of the magician.  Perfecting tricks of deception and canonizing their illusion as settled law is like announcing to the public that your life and liberty are arbitrary and contingent upon the “good will” of the sacred master of power.

Will You Surrender Your Firearms?

Are you a person, who repeats the Pledge of Allegiance at a local town board meeting or sings the National Anthem at a sporting event? Well, such people are likely candidates to turn over their firearms, when the collection van stops at your door to remove hazardous guns that endanger you, your family and neighbors. Surely, you file income taxes and pay your financial obligations to the government, what would prevent you from surrendering your personal lethal weapons, for the betterment of the state and the best interests of your community? Let’s get real! Any country that demands the capitulation of the right for self-protection does not deserve a citizen’s loyalty or obedience.

No where to go and no where to hide

The European Satellite Navigation System GALILEO, will be the next generation GPS - Global Position System - and a separate tracking technology that will usher in total planetary surveillance. This program is a joint initiative of the European Commission and the European Space Agency (ESA). As stressed in the European Commission White Paper on European transport policy for 2010, the European Union needs an independent satellite navigation system. Galileo is Europe's contribution to a global navigation satellite infrastructure (GNSS).

Special Privileges For Feds

If you believe that Martha Stewart is an enemy of the state, you are right. However, is she a desperado that deserves the fate of corporate plungers? Well, the art of stealing from public companies is often rewarded for the skilled crook; but if you are caught in a lie, you are the worst of the worse. The focal point in this soap opera is missed by the media. Back in June of 2002, in Steward of the Public Trust, we asked: "Should Ms. Stewart be tarred and feathered for using etiquette banned by the SEC? Or are we supposed to swing Martha's stockbroker, Peter Bacanovic, from the highest tree for getting her out of a down market?"

Open Appeal to Conservatives

A deep confusion has overtaken our land. A lack of understanding of our own history and its meaning is epidemic. A conveyance of personal identity has been transposed into a frenzy for Statism. And a dependence in allegiance to unquestioned leadership has replaced common sense. No wonder that those who view themselves as conservatives, are bewildered.

Fatalistic Reality and Election Futility

Thank God, another election cycle is over. Some celebrate that elections demonstrate that the country prides itself on a peaceful transition of power. Others rejoice that elections reflect the will of the people. And you hear the familiar pronouncement, that democracy brings legitimacy to the rule of government. If all this was true, why is the nation always in trouble? After every election, the system continues to grind citizens into the ground. The privileged few continue to accrue their vast sums of booty, as the debt soars to heights that only a super computer can calculate.

No Despotism - Only Independence

Despotism is the real obscenity. “You know it when you see it . . . “ According to the U.S. Supreme Court Obscenity Definition:

1) A thing must be prurient in nature.

2) A thing must be completely devoid of scientific, political, educational, or social value.

3) A thing must violate the local community standards If it meets all three of these things, it is obscenity.

Renaissance Revolution

As the secular culture dominates society and accelerates its decay into a primordial debauchery, the high priests of the age preach that progress is their supreme sacrament.  Nothing else is sacred for the relativists.  Only the social doctrine that dehumanizes the individual and elevates the “politically correct” cultural Jacobins is allowed to survive.  Stamping out the last remnants of traditional Western Civilization is all that matters to this humanism house of worship.

The Extinction of the Middle Class

For those who retain the capacity of understanding the past, fond memories of a society that once had a vibrant middle class, conveys pride and nostalgia.  Today, the harsh reality is that the United States has been transformed into an unyielding authoritarian command and control gulag.  A mere gap between the ruled and the rulers has turned into a gulf of nationwide width.  The internment camp that relocates undesirables has been built large enough to process your friends and family.  Most simply ignore or deny their plight.  They are bent on living an illusion because they are enjoying the ‘good life’.  It’s only the malcontent that risks the wrath of the central planners.  For the vast majority - the system - still has relevance.

Taxes, Death and Certainty

Each season when spring approaches, attention turns to the ritual of filling out tax forms.  All year long paying taxes is an integral part of the daily regiment.  But when it comes time to sign your permission slip for legalized thievery, your submission to indentured servitude goes public.  By becoming just another number in the long line of digital compliance under the penalty of perjury, the average citizen is performing his or her financial obligation to the State.  At least that is what you are told is your duty.

America First is Populism in action

Most people associate the term America First with foreign policy. While the implication speaks loudly for a pro national stand, most ignore the tradition that Populism is at the core of the movement. In order to understand the heritage, one should examine the most overt aspects of this tradition. Professor Ralph Raico, states  the case for an American First foreign policy in his book - The Failure of America’s Foreign Wars. He refers to the following motto used by Richard Cobden, the libertarian theorist of international relations:
